A cross-sectional survey on awareness of applied clinical physiology concepts among medical interns in a southern tertiary care institution

Mythili Bai K, Madhavrao C.

Abstract
Background: In India, the preclinical subjects - anatomy, physiology and biochemistry are taught during the 1st year of medical curriculum, as per the norms of Medical Council of India. Physiology is one of the preclinical subjects that form the basis for core knowledge in medical field to improve and deliver the better health care.

Aims and Objectives: The aim and objective are to study the awareness of applied clinical physiology concepts among medical interns in a southern tertiary care center.

Materials and Methods: A cross-sectional study was conducted using a pre-validated questionnaire on interns in a southern-based medical institution. All the principles of bioethics were adhered throughout the study period. The obtained data were analyzed and expressed in frequency and percentage.

Results: This study showed that the study participants were not able to give the correct responses to the questions describing the different domains of applied clinical physiology concepts, and the percentage was found to be low (<50%). Majority of the study participants gave the positive opinion that physiology is one of the basic preclinical subjects, which helps in better understanding of other disciplines in medical field. It was also noted that majority of study participants were willing to update their knowledge in physiology through various teaching and learning programs.

Conclusion: This study showed that there was a poor knowledge but with positive attitude toward the applied clinical physiology concepts among medical interns in a southern tertiary care center.
